Should we maybe make this page less eclipse-centric? I don't think many people use it for KDE development, everyone uses kate, QtCreator, or KDevelop... I already updated (aka removed) the section about KDevelop which was horribly outdated -- possibly the same for the other sections?

How about cmake's "eclipse project file generator"?

This article describes the following way to use eclipse for KDE development:

  1. run cmake to create makefile
  2. create new eclipse project with existing makefile

How do you think about this way:

  1. run cmake -G "Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" ... to create an eclipse project file
  2. import this project file into eclipse

See also CMake - Eclipse CDT4 Generator

I am still seeking "the best way" to develop KDE with eclipse. But I'm at the very beginning, so your experience would be very appreciated.

Update svn links to git?

I'm very new to kde development, so I don't have the heart to change the article itself. Therefore I start the following discussion:

The article (section "Set up Eclipse with KDE") shows the following svn command to get kdepim sources:

svn co svn://

But this does not work (at least for me). I get the error:

svn: URL 'svn://' doesn't exist

As far as I know by now, KDE 4 source code moved from svn to git. Hence the line should be corrected to:

git clone git://

Maybe we should link to Git URL Renaming, too?

Please make the change, if you know it works. In this case KDEPIM indeed moved to Git, so it is save to change it.

In general if the page is about development, I think linking to URL renaming and using kde:foo URL is alright. If it is about building an application by hand, just stating anongit should be enough.

Thanks for your contribution.
